Dermal Enhancement

Our skin always benefits from a bit of freshening up. The skin is exposed to outside influences each and every day. As we age, the quality of our skin diminishes as well, becoming drier and rougher in texture, for example. This is due to decreasing levels of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. To repair the skin, we employ a range of dermal enhancement techniques. The aim of these treatments is to hydrate your skin from the inside out and let it glow again.

Consult a Physician

We always schedule a consultation prior to any treatment. During this meeting, the practitioner will listen to your wishes and explore ways to achieve your goal. The practitioner will provide you with extensive information on preparation and follow-up, what results to expect, possible risks and the recovery process for your chosen procedure.

The Procedure

Once you decide to have us perform a specific procedure, we will ask you to complete a medical questionnaire and sign a treatment contract before commencing the procedure. Do you take multiple medications? Please bring a list of your current medicines to your appointment.

We will take photographs for your medical records both before and after your treatment. In certain cases, we will apply local anesthesia to numb your skin prior to treatment, using either a numbing cream or a liquid anesthetic.

Follow-Up

We will email you a follow-up form after the treatment. You can go straight home; there’s no need for you to stay at the clinic. The skin can often appear red and swollen after a treatment and some people may experience bruising. These side effects will go away on their own. If you were told to cool the treated area with the coolpack provided, it is important to follow this advice carefully. In case of bad bruises, we recommend applying Arnica ointment to the affected area.

The application of makeup to treated areas is not recommended for the first four hours after the procedure. Additionally, we advise against exposing these areas to intense heat (sun, sauna or tanning bed) for at least a week after treatment. Nor is it advisable to have any facials within two weeks of your procedure. After two weeks, you will be able to evaluate the final results of your treatment.

Should you have any questions concerning your recovery, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Risks

The risk of complications is very small. As with any intervention, there is a slight risk of infection or an allergic reaction.

An Overview of Our Treatments

SkinboosterProfhiloProfhilo SerumDermapenKybella/BelkyraSculptra

Skinbooster (Restylane Vital)

Restylane Vital skinbooster treatments are specially developed to nourish your skin and enhance its structure and condition quickly and lastingly. They gradually improve the quality of your skin from within. Hydrating micro-injections of hyaluronic acid replenish your natural hyaluronin acid reserves, enhancing your skin from the inside and stimulating the production of collagen. This reduces unevenness and lines, leaving your skin smooth and supple with a ‘healthy glow.’

The product can also help to fade old (acne) scars and is suitable for use on the hands, chest and neck as well. This product is administered as a course of treatment. That means we administer the product in three sessions, with two to four weeks between treatments. After that you will require a maintenance session every six months.

Profhilo

Profhilo is an anti-aging treatment that uses pure hyaluronic acid without any additional chemicals. With only five jabs per side of the face, this is a minimally invasive treatment, and you can go right back to your daily activities afterwards without anybody noticing. The positive impact of Profhilo treatments is due to the production of collagen and elastin and stimulation of the fat tissue. This is known as bio-remodeling. The Profhilo treatment makes all the various layers of your skin healthy and firm again. An important advantage of this treatment is that it rejuvenates your skin without adding facial volume. It genuinely repairs the skin and targets any laxity. Profhilo can also be used to tighten up the neck, chest, hands, upper arms or legs. To obtain the best possible result, we recommend a course of at least two or three Profhilo treatments, with approximately 28 days between sessions. After six months you will need a maintenance session.

Profhilo Serum Haenkenium

Profhilo Haenkenium combines hyaluronic acid (HA) complex with the patented salvia haenkei extract, Haenkenium, which functions as an antioxidant, protects the skin against premature aging and hyperpigmentation, restores the barrier function, relieves skin irritation and provides hydration to the skin. According to IBSA Italy, it combines 2 different molecular weights; the high molecular weight HA creates the protective effect and the low molecular weight contributes to optimal hydration of the skin.

Salvia Haenkei helps to protect against free radicals. Furthermore, the product is ideal for use after aesthetic treatments such as botox, fillers and peels, but it can also be added to your daily skincare routine. Suggested use: twice a day.

Dermapen

The Dermapen is the most professional and appropriate microneedling system. The Dermapen procedure is a safe and effective way to achieve far-reaching dermal enhancement and dermal rejuvenation. The skin is rejuvenated and enhanced from deep within, without damage to the epidermis.

The Dermapen contains miniscule microneedles that create tiny wounds to the skin, activating the natural healing process. The pulsing of the Dermapen’s tiny microneedles produces small channels in the skin. This stimulates the blood vessels, naturally activating the skin and initiating the natural healing process. The release of active healing elements encourages the production of collagen and elastin. The result is thicker, stronger and smoother skin. The rejuvenation of the skin also acts to reduce scars and wrinkles, and fade pigmentation.

It is important to keep up your course of treatment. How often this will be necessary is strongly dependent on your skin type. Our dermal specialist can advise you on the particulars.

Kybella / Belkyra

Kybella has been well-known in the United States for many years. In Europe, this product is marketed as Belkyra. The active ingredient is deoxycholic acid. This substance is naturally present in the body and is used to break down the fats in our food.

A double chin consists primarily of fat tissue. This is precisely what makes the product ideally suited to breaking down that tissue. As the destroyed fat cells are no longer capable of storing fat, your double chin shrinks. The body disposes of the degraded fat cells without further intervention.

If you are interested in this treatment, we will first schedule a consultation. During this meeting, the practitioner will investigate your problem area and discuss whether this treatment is appropriate. If this is the case, they will also estimate how many sessions will be required to achieve your goal. The treatment involves injection of the liquid into the fatty tissue under your chin. It is important to cool the treated area well. This is because the treatment will cause your lower chin to swell and redden. Some bruising may occur, but this will fade away on its own.

Sculptra

Sculptra is a 100% biodegradable polylactic acid incorporated in hydrogel. The product has already proven itself in America for the past 25 years and is therefore FDA-approved. The product is suitable for the face and for the body. It can be used against cellulite, hip dips, subcutaneous imperfections after surgery and what it has become particularly famous for: giving volume to the buttocks. This avoids costly surgical intervention to fill the buttocks. An additional advantage is that daily activities can be continued immediately and the chance of complications is much smaller. Sculptra is completely absorbed by the body and eventually disappears completely from the body. The treating doctor applies the Sculptra solution just under the skin using small, thin needles. Because inserting the needle into the skin can be sensitive in some places, the doctor often uses a combination of Sculptra with a local anesthetic. Slight swelling is normal in the first hours after treatment. Immediately after the treatment, the volume-restoring effect of Sculptra is visible. After the first two weeks, that effect diminishes again, because the polylactic acid spreads in the skin. Then the new collagen starts to form. It takes a few weeks for the final result to become visible. The effect of Sculptra treatments is sustainable. The effect is visible for two to four years. After two years, Sculptra has been completely replaced by the body’s own collagen.
